I don't understand, so you buy things and then return them when baby comes and gender is confirmed?

Thanks for reminding me! I've told DH and my Mum so we can buy some things this weekend. Yay!

No, I would never go out and buy gender specific items for each gender and then return then after the baby arrives. I actually think doing that is incredibly weird, especially when you've already got a child of each gender, if it's that important they wear pink or blue from the second they arrive can they not wear an outfit you already have and then you can go out and buy pink or blue when you do know? Or surely your baby can wear a gender neutral outfit for a few days at birth?

Buying clothes on sale that you may not need(gender specific), just takes them away from people who may genuinely need them right now.

Yay to the sale, but I am with the others why buy something you won't need.  I get it if it is one outfit (like an easter thing or something) but a whole heap makes no sense to me.  

Am I the only person who loves babies in white?

Actually sometimes they do run out of clothes in the size you want and don't get any more of the same thing in.

No, I loved my first daughter in white but my other two were lighter in colouring so I prefered them in something brighter.

Yeah they sometimes do when it comes to certain sizes and colours. Especially when sales are on. They are not always the most helpfull to get stuff ordered in.

OP, I see from your sig you still have over a month to go. Have you checked with Target that they will accept returns that long after the purchase?

I don't have a problem with what you are doing but would hate to see you get stuck with a heap of things you can't use.

Ah no, never.  It would never occur to me to do this, its kind or wrong.  Just buy gender neutral

#13 Bluenomi

Posted 17 January 2013 - 01:37 PM

I used to work at Target and pepole would buy stuff for both genders and return it later all the time. Usually grandmothers who couldn't bare the though of their grandbabies not in blue/pink.

It did mean some people got a bargin though since by that stage the clothes were reduced when they went back on the racks.

I love Target biggrin.gif

And I think babies look so sweet in white too. Someone once commented on here that yellow and green don't suit a lot of babies' skin tones but DD looks gorgeous in both as well as white and even grey. So no, had I not known I was having a girl I doubt I would have bought girly clothes - there's always going to be another sale! Each to their own though, Target has some gorgeous clothes so they can be irresistible!!

I went and did an online layby because with it being 41 degrees i am not going out shopping in this heat.

We dont know the gender and probably won't find out so I just got four outfits in newborn 0000 and four in the 000/ 0-3 months size in neutral, there was actually quite a few neutral choices without having to buy lemon lol.

TBH each to their own, but I don't plan on buying anymore clothes other then a 'going home' outfit, dd is picking a girls one and ds1 is picking a boys one, but this will be done when i'm 38wks as i tend to not make 40wks lol The other one will then get returned. Or we might just keep to the neutral ones, I got a hungry caterpillar set, cookie monster set and elmo set, so one of those could easily be used instead.

If it turns out blue though I do already have some baby boy clothes, dd's got given away a while ago though.

Underneath that carseat it is says no deposit layby is available on clothing and nursery until 30th January so I would think the carseat is nursery? Maybe call your store and ask before going in?

It's noisy, we got it for DS1 when he started toilet training and it was so loud it terrified him!

As to the Milan car seat, you can layby it and it is quite narrow. We've got the Cairo which is the same seat without the canopy and toybar and DD was in it until 16 months of age.

As a PP said, they may not run out of clothes but they can and do run out of particular sizes.  Have you never been to the shops and found it hard to find a particular size.

What I have found is they get in their early season stock then a smaller mid season stock, usually different styles.  Once that sells out they don't get anymore stock in till the next season.

One year when my youngest was TT  in December I grabbed the last two packs of a particular size underwear.  I asked a staff member if they had anymore.  She said all they had was on the shelf and they wouldn't get anymore in till February.  So basically for over a month there would be no size 2 -3 jocks in that store.

I hate white or grey anything.

Also (and EB can flame me for this) but I don't like gender neutral outfits unless they have colour in them. But I love colour. I wouldn't buy things only to return them later but I don't think it's that weird to do so. I don't see it as an ethical problem, more an inconvenience for the OP but if she is happy to do it good for her.

Gave up on their stupid online layby.

First it wouldn't let me choose pick up because after selecting NSW, the list of stores would go blank.
So I chose delivery, and it showed the first deposit amount. Says 'you will not be charged for the whole order'.
Paypal and credit card are both trying to charge the whole amount instead of the minimum deposit it's showing me.

Must be a sign that I've done too much clothes shopping lately.
Boo.

I was looking at getting this but when I checked the safety ratings decided against it.

You should be able to layby it though.

PP the online layby does do the full total when going through to paypal but it only takes out the amount you set for the deposit, they did the same at the July Christmas toy laybys too.
